    I told myself I would stop after the last pair but these were on sale. What was I supposed to do?
    Just when I think I'm done they keep pulling me back in...

    I forgot how comfy the wedge sole is.

    ^Awesome. I'm eager for the brown CXL version to come in, which'll be my first casual/non-shell Alden purchase in over a year.

    You will not be disappointed. I had the CXL version from their original release a few years ago. After amassing too many boots and shoes, they stopped getting worn and were one of the first pair of Alden that I sold on here and have regretted it ever since. Every time a picture of somebody's pops up now on Instagram or here I feel the pain. And then of course I missed out on the pre-order this time around. I'm hoping that they'll have one available for me anyway...

    ^ Awesome deal! If I didn't have a snuff suede Alt Wien, I'd be all over these.

    Most interesting. Priceless time capsule samples.

    Looking great in your Whiskey LWBs.
    Thanks!
    Looking good in your Indy Boots!
    These PTBs are truly beautiful, thanks for sharing. Their older construction is superb.
    Don, yours are superb! I just opened my pairs an hour or so ago.
    Yeah, they seem to do that to us!!!
    Those are looking superb! Not too familiar with the wedge sole. -Mike

    Thanks Mike! These are probably my best looking color 8s of the three I have. The other two are much darker and will probably take a good bit of time to lighten.

    I actually own the natural cxl pair (that I bought used) so I'm hoping the brown cxl pair is different enough (with the brown eyelets, etc.)
